    Thank you!

    I made these changes. They didn’t have an impact at first, but now that I’ve waited a couple days and just replaced the images, it’s working again!

    Thank you! I will not fiddle with the blog display again without backing the site up as is.

    Thank you, Brad.

    I hadn’t installed any extra plugins, but I went ahead and tested this out anyway. Even with EVERYTHING deactivated, the animation still does not work.

    One of the things I was working on when the animation stopped working… I was using the below shortcode on a separate page.

    [posts-grid show="-1" cat="" excerptlength="24"]

    It’s a shortcode from your other themes (I think a theme that uses SKT Builder and not Elementor), one that was not included in the demo content for this one (SKT-ACTOR, which uses Elementor). The shortcode DID work though… But I’m wondering if using the shortcode somewhere else on the site could be responsible somehow?

    Oh, thank you so much! I’m sorry I missed that.

    For the Menu Active Text & Border Color

    Is there a way to separate out the appointment-btn class?

    I’m using anchor links in my menu which means almost ALL the menu items are an active page … (except for the appointment-btn menu item), so I think it’ll be cleaner to just make the active menu text white — the same as the regular menu text.

    But when I change them to white, the appointment-btn is changing too: https://casaraclark.com/actor/writer/standup/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/oh-no-appt-button.jpeg

    … I guess the appointment-btn border/background AND hover text are both linked to the active menu text color? …

    Is there custom css I can add that’ll let me separate them?

    IN SUMMARY, I would like to:
    (1) make the active menu text white
    (2) let the appointment-btn class keep its regular white text and blue (#0000cc) border and fill, which’ll then switch on the hover to blue (#0000cc) text and white border and fill.

    Right now, (2) is only happening for me, if I sacrifice (1) and make the active menu text #0000cc.

    Thank you!

    Hey! So… let me rephrase the above issue.

    When I insert a picture using SKT Builder (specifically the column build), it prompts me to pick the picture from my own computer, NOT from the media library. I created 19 pages with this format, thinking it’d be fine until I realized that there’s no sign of the images I uploaded in the media library.

    Not sure how this is working? But it seems that the SKT Builder image-insert button somehow circumvents the Media Library.

    And so, I can’t add alt text to any image inserted via the SKT Builder interface … [specifically THE COLUMNS, for some builds, the SKT Builder DOES prompt me to draw from the media library! But not in the “general” column build.]

    I just … how do I find these images outside of SKT Builder? They have to be somewhere! Right?
    They’re not in the media library. But if I can find them, maybe I can figure out how to add alt text to them…? Without being able to access them in the media library, I have absolutely no idea how to try and add alt text.

    [Also, is there a chance that the theme is treating the image like a background…? And if so, would that be helpful to know?]

    Thank you,
    Casara

    Just wanted to circle around about this. I’ve done some research and seen that some people intentionally have the alt text pull the title. Perhaps it’s new information that the ADA compliance software flags it as redundant then?

    I found a couple of sources that say this is the code to pull up the alt text from the media library:

    // retrieve alt (which is stored as metadata to a post)
    $alt = get_post_meta($thumbnail_id, '_wp_attachment_image_alt', true);

    or this…

    <?php $alt_text = get_post_meta($img_id , '_wp_attachment_image_alt', true); ?>
    <h1 class="entry-title"><?php echo $alt_text; ?></h1>

    Perhaps, I’ll have to just start experimenting (after backing up my site, of course), but since y’all are the experts, I’d love to see if you have insight on how to recode the Photo Gallery so the alt text is the alt text from the media library, NOT the title again.

    Thank you!

    Thank you! Once I set the screen options to include that feature, I was able to spot it and make the change. Thanks!

    Do you just mean the URL for the page of the website that has the photo gallery?

    Or is there some URL I can/should pull that would be specific to only the photo gallery?

    Assuming it’s the former, there are two pages that utilize the photo gallery.
    The page linked in the very first post on this thread is the one that has three category-specific photo galleries (under OUR CLIENTS)! (I’d relink it again, but this post didn’t go through when I linked it and I understand that sometimes too many URLs is the cause of that).
    This page has one category-specific photo gallery: https://www.ramolawpc.com/refresh/financing-legal/

    I did some review in the theme files myself and within sktframe, in the corefunctions.php, I see this code, starting line 808:

    		$pfStr .= '<li data-id="id-'.$j.'" data-type="cat-item-'.implode(' ', $slugAr).'" class="portfolio-item2">
     <a class="image-zoom" href="'.( ($videoUrl) ? $videoUrl : $imgSrc[0] ).'" rel="prettyPhoto[gallery]" title="'.get_the_title().'"><div><span class="image-block"><img src="'.$imgSrc[0].'" alt="'.get_the_title().'" title="'.get_the_title().'"/></span><h3 class="gallerytitle">'.get_the_title().'</h3></div></a></li>';

    It seems to me that

    alt="'.get_the_title().'"

    might be the exact cause of my problem!

    I would love it if the alt pulled from the ALT field in the media library INSTEAD of the title.

    Do you know what code I would replace “‘.get_the_title().'” with to have it pull up the alt text instead?

    Thank you!

    It looks like the “code” tool ended up cutting off the text, so recopying the error here:

    An active PHP session was detected | Performance
    A PHP session was created by a session_start() function call. This interferes with REST API and loopback requests. The session should be closed by session_write_close() before making any HTTP requests.

    3/3

    And if I try a whole new menu, I lose the red button altogether:

    https://cynthialeaclark.com/PsyD/PhD/MHt/actress/writer/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/no-red-button-at-all.jpeg

    So how do I keep the big red button and put it on a different menu item? I can’t merely edit the link, so what else can I do?

    If I try and create a new menu item, I don’t see how I get it to adopt the css of the big red button. I was hoping the css applied to whatever menu item was at the far right… but no.

    If I put a menu item to the right, it just looks like this:

    RESPONSE SPLIT INTO THREE POSTS

    1/3

    Here’s a screencap of that window (Appearance >> Menu).

    https://cynthialeaclark.com/PsyD/PhD/MHt/actress/writer/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/menu-interface.jpeg

    The menu item is TIED to the page. It’s not like a ‘custom link’ menu item, where I COULD change the link myself… See, there’s no option to change the link. Just the option to click the “Original” page… And view the page it’s tied to…

    This post has a different problem actually.

    The problem here is that any time I utilize the Photo Gallery, the alt text is being pulled/generated from the title (I think) and creating redundant information.

    You can see in this picture here: https://www.ramolawpc.com/refresh/new/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/beverly-luff-lin-alt-text.jpeg

    …That I did manually modify the alt text attached to the image in the photo gallery. I chose wording that would not be flagged as redundant.

    Yet, the code (copied in my reply above) clearly shows a different alt text, one that is an exact match to the title text. So the Photo Gallery ignores/overrides what I entered and seemingly auto-generates its own alt text based on the exact text of the title.

    This ONLY happens in the photo gallery. And I’d love it to not happen.

    (In that other post, there’s no alt text being generated at all. So, very different.)

    Thank you!
